Tropical Storm Don 10am Update - Warnings Issued for Texas

As of the 10am CDT advisory on Tropical Storm Don, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued a Tropical Storm Warning from Port Mansfield to San Luis Pass along the Texas coast (which corresponds with the blue shaded area on the image below).  Remember... a Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected within the warned area within 36 hours.

At 10am CDT... the center of Tropical Storm Don (located at the center of the satellite image below) was about 520 miles East/Southeast of Corpus Christi, TX, which is about 480 miles East/Southeast of Brownsville, TX.  Don was moving toward the Northwest at 14 mph.  Maximum sustained winds have risen to 45 mph, and the minimum central pressure was 29.56 inches of mercury.

For additional details on the forecast track and intensity of Don, as well as the associated rainfall potential for Texas, please see my earlier post here.
